Hazard Log – One of the three documents that manufacturers and healthcare organisations are required to create when they design and implement health IT systems. The document sets out the hazard, causes, controls and impacts associated with operating a health IT system. The Hazard Log is a key component of the Clinical Safety Case Report and forms the basis of the argument which is presented. The Hazard Log contains the data which allows the level of clinical risk to be evaluated.
